Talking Center Part? or Side Part?

I'm getting extensions in my hair in December, and I cannot make up my mind whether I want a middle or side part. I have never rocked a middle part before because I don't know how it will flatter my round face. Although, I have seen some chicks with round faces rock it very well. Anyway, ladies, which do you prefer? Side or center part?

Center Part




Side Part







I know for a fact that a side part looks good on my round face, but I'm getting kind of tired of hiding one eye-brow.... I just figured the middle part would show my face more. I just don't wanna get the extensions and find out, when it's too late, that it does not look good on me.

I think it's kind of a personal preference Per Se'. I particulary like the "Middle". Back in the day I couldn't stand it! Go figure!

Everyone can't wear a center part. I don't know if that's you or not, but personally I can't. I like an off center part when I want to switch from a side part.

Default Re: Center Part? or Side Part?

well, try it out on your real hair, you've got some time, lol.

my preference is to get enough left out so that i can switch my parts around. since i use textures that match easily usually, it's no biggie.

I think a center part is more modern looking. I've never done a center part because I think it looks better on longer lengths. Once I get to APL, I'll likely do center parts.

I have a round face and I've been doing the center part all my life! I had a shoulder length graduated bob before i went natural. Just see what looks better on you

I can wear both but it depends how I'm wearing my hair. If I'm bunning I'll always don a side part. If I'm wearing my hair out with some curls and waves I'll wear a centre part, like in the first pic.

I wear a center part and like it on me. Whenever I try to part my hair somewhere else my scalp in that spot ends up feeling really tender.

I vote off center. Not completely a side part, and not a center part. Although I'm a center parting fool if I do say so myself

I've recently switched to a center part and I love it. However, I do think you can get by easier with "undone" hair when in a sew in when you have a side part. I recently had a sew in and with a center part, you have to curl it more often IMO. In any event all the photos you posted are gorgeous!

I cannot do a center part - my forehead is just too big so I prefer a side part so I can distract people from it.
